The Metal Clad (MC) wiper usually contains a Nitrile or Urethane wiper encased in a metal retainer. This design provides mechanical bonding as the element overlaps a portion of the retainer. A good chemical bond is also provided. The metal retaining ring is made from high quality steel of the proper wall thickness, which provides adequate hoop strength for the various diameters.
Wipers remove any particulate and debris from a rod, to protect the functioning of the whole machine. All are suited to hydraulic and pneumatic applications. And the press-fit design reduces machining time in the manufacture of the cylinders. Temperature ranges are -65-degrees to +230-degrees.
The wiper is rigid enough to handle the toughest of scraping environments such as dry/wet mud and ice, yet sensitive enough to exclude fine dust and moisture. Unlike the Snap-In Wiper that fits in a gland inside the cylinder, the Metal Clad Wiper is press fit into the end of the cylinder.
